*** 2nd IEEE CITA 2015 - Call for Participation ***
--- The 2015 IEEE CIS School on Computational Intelligence – Theory and Applications ---
*** Ramada Plaza Tunis Hotel, Tunisia ***
12-15 November 2015
Sponsors: IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, IEEE Region 8, IEEE Tunisia Section, and REGIM-Lab.
The main goal of the summer school is to provide undergraduate students, M.Sc. or PhD students, academics, and engineers from industry with hands-on knowledge on sophisticated Computational Intelligence (CI) algorithms and methods, most recent advances and developments in CI research, and substantial examples of successful CI applications to solving complex real-world problems. The school includes theoretical and practical sessions.
The choice of such topic is based on the growing attention paid towards intelligent systems. The school aims also to discuss the challenges and to strengthen the connection between academia and industry in the area of Computational Intelligence.
The program of the school includes theoretical and practical talks during four days from 12 to 15 November 2015. It also includes poster session. All students have to present their ideas / works in a poster. A best poster award will be announced in the closing session. An evaluation exam should be done before the closing session.
